We invited the Barbican Young Photographers to capture our recent Young Barbican private view for The Japanese House: Architecture and Life After 1945.
Take a look at our photo gallery below to see what details caught their eye throughout the evening.
The Barbican Young Photographers is a twelve–week programme that brings young photographers together with professional art-form specialists to develop their skills and technique as a photographer. Find out how you could be involved in the next Young Photographers – and more of our creative projects for young people – on our website.

'I applied to the Barbican Young Photographers programme because of the opportunity to receive mentoring and guidance from professional photographers working in various genres, to meet other individuals who are passionate about the medium, and because of the opportunities to shoot a selection of the amazing events in the Barbican's calendar. From the programme, I hope to improve my technical knowledge and to experiment with categories beyond portraiture to increase the breadth of my portfolio. '
'I wanted to have opportunity to improve my photographic skills and learn from talented professionals, also Barbican estate is most inspiring place in London for me. Being part of this group is very important to me because I want to learn how to work in a team, and get critique from other young photographers. '
'I applied for Young Photographers to help find a direction and help develop my style. Having been generally self taught with input from my mum, I wanted to expand my contacts within the photographic community, as well as expand and enhance my skill set.'
'I wanted guidance from professional photographers who would be able to help me develop my ideas and inspire me to create new projects. What I want most from attending this group is to take better pictures by learning from my mistakes. I also wanted the opportunity to network with other photographers as I believe this will help me broaden my knowledge.'
